State v. Bernard, 236 N.C. App. 134 (Sept. 2, 2014)

In a case involving unlawful access to computers and identity theft, a search warrant authorizing a search of the defendant and her home and vehicle was supported by probable cause. The court rejected the defendant’s argument that hearsay evidence was improperly considered in the probable cause determination. It went on to conclude that the warrant was supported by probable cause where the defendant’s home was connected to an IP address used to unlawfully access an email account of a NC A&T employee.
